KLENG knives - Traditional craftsmanship meets innovative technologies
The KLENG manufactory is always looking for something special. For valuable and sustainable materials, for sharp details and easy handling. According to traditional craftsmanship and innovative technology. That's why a new generation of knives was developed - for a new generation of chefs. It is produced locally in Solingen - instead of in a big way in the Far East. In their manufactory only small quantities are produced, but in high quality. From the milling of the handle to the honing of the blade, everything is made by hand. So you always hold an absolutely unique piece in your hands. And with every step, this small manufactory comes a little closer to its goal: to produce a knife that inspires generations. In the city of blades, Solingen, there is a centuries-old knife tradition. The best knives in the world are made here. "Made in Solingen" is still considered the highest quality feature for knives today. KLENG knives are handcrafted in Solingen by the most experienced grinders in their trade. The deep bond with the homeland is also rooted in the company name. Because KLENG is Solingen dialect and means "blade" - the heart of every knife.
Lovingly handcrafted from Solingen
All KLENG knives are manufactured in small quantities in the Solingen manufactory with the greatest dedication. The craftsmanship can be seen, for example, in the matt-polished blade surface. The so-called "Blauplisten" was invented here in Solingen and makes the knives particularly durable. Tradition meets technology. There are many sharp knives, but few remain so. This is partly due to the type of steel that is used. If the steel is too hard, it becomes brittle or gets nicks. If it's too soft, it quickly becomes dull. The traditional Solingen blade steel offers a good balance and is therefore so famous. With the innovative diamond-like coating, the properties have been further improved. This makes the blade more scratch-resistant and durable.
Sustainable materials for your KLENG knife
Kheng only uses fiber bamboo for the handles and blocks of the knives. Bamboo was already used in ancient China to weave baskets, boxes, mats and curtains from the bamboo fiber. Weaving gives the bamboo extra strength. This principle can also be found in the knife handles. First, the bamboo is divided into small fibers and then compressed under high pressure to achieve its particularly high density and strength. The density even surpasses luxurious tropical woods - without a single tree having to be felled. Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world and can therefore store a particularly large amount of CO2.
